New Release: The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

One of my most anticipated releases for this fall is The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman! Huge thanks to Simon Books for the copy to read and review!

The prequel to Practical Magic, The Rules of Magic takes us into the world of the Owens sisters, this time focusing on the Aunts from Practical Magic. I cannot wait to start this because I just loved the way Hoffman intertwined magic and real life in her first book and I know The Rules of Magic won't be any different! The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman is out today, October 10th!

Heres a quick synopsis from Goodreads:

For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.

From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.

The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy.
